Meet Marylee



I’m Marylee of Moments with Marylee.  This is a blog for those trying to keep their lives simple and tidy.  I have been blessed with the need to be tidy for as long as I can remember.  Stay a moment and you will find simple ways to keep your life tidy and clean, while staying on a budget!

Also with this blog I hope to talk to others that have been affected by miscarriage/infant loss.  In late May of 2015, I had a miscarriage.  A lot of times women/couples cope in silence when they have these kinds of losses.  I am here to say, we don’t have to keep it hush-hush.  Sometimes it helps to share and relate to others.  If you want to chat please do not hesitate to email me at

Nathan is my handsome and caring husband. We were engaged 2 months after we started dating and married 8 months later.  From the beginning we called it a God thing.  We have been inseparable since the moment we met.  I love this man, the father of my son.

In 2017, we were blessed with a handsome baby boy, Lucas. He is our rainbow baby and I thank God for him everyday. 

We have 2 adorable poodles named Violet (black and gray) and Venti (brown).  I am a follower of Jesus Christ and I pray that he blesses this blog and those who read.
